. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th

and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american flag on the wall campaign music, crowds and the press were invited. voters had to wait to drop off their donations until romney arrived to collect them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

can see these campaigns are taking no chances. >> reporter: governor romney will join ryan's bus tour in ohio. president obama canceled events in virginia and colorado. he'll do one last rally in florida today before heading back to washington. on sunday the president met with fema, the federal emergency management agency overseeing the government's plans to help states and cities. >> anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. >> reporter: in florida the president told campaign workers turnout is the key. >> whoever is able to get their voters out, they're the one whose are going to win florida. >> reporter: that could be tough in states where sandy is headed. maryland already canceled early voting today. virginia, a battleground state could see power outages lasting until election day. >> several months ago we had the largest -- third largest power outage in history but we got everything pretty much back on in seven days. we're not expecting that this time. >> reporter: virginia is already plannin
ryan are urging supporters to donate. >> swing by, give a hand -- >> make sure we do our very best to help those being impacted by the storm. >> anything he says injects pure politics into it. so you want to be careful if you're the romney need to keep an eye on it, obviously. but don't necessarily try to get in front of the story in any way. >> reporter: one week before the election, polls are tied, but campaigning at a standstill. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> reporter: families also affected by jobs, but the labor department is telling us this morning that the jobs report, the last one before the election due out on friday, will likely come out on time. they've had people crunching the numbers at home while the federal government has been closed. lynn? >> tracie potts in washington, thanks so much. >>> as we button up this show, obviously a lot of people, we want to extend all of our thoughts to everyone along the eastern seaboard and around the country. >> there's a lot of people that lived in th
at least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you'
ticket? paul ryan and mitt romney, where are they going to be? >> mitt romney is going to florida. he's going to make three stops with former governor jeb bush, including jacksonville, miami, and also tampa bay. yesterday he was in the dayton, ohio, area. turned a rally into a relief event for hurricane victims. paul ryan will make three stops in wisconsin. wisconsin has not been a battle ground in years past, but obviously with ryan on the ticket, polls showing a close race. republicans are hoping to make it a battle ground that perhaps they can win this time around. congressman ryan will make three stops in his home state. >> gretchen: mike emmanuel live at the white house, thank you very much. >> steve: as peter said a moment ago issues millions of americans are without power right now. we're just six days away from the big election and take a look. this depicts the northeast. the states in yellow, if you're watching your tv, have between zero and half a million cases of the power outage. then you look at the red states and those include new york and pennsylvania and connecticut an
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michiga
in entitlements. interestingly, governor romney and paul reihan -- paul ryan fell into the trap of telling this to seniors. people vote for leadership. at what the president should have done is what i believe he will do if he is reelected, and what are held governor romney will do, and that is, lead. it would have a framework here -- we have a framework here that can fix the debt. nothing is more important than eliminating the deficit and fixing the debt. so many things will flow from that. the president has to get both sides together, the caucus leaders, the people who took some chances on since and-bolts, tom coburn who said, i guess, i'm taking a chance. we've got to get the big urbansa -- the dick durbins, who supported simpson-balls even though it -- simpson-bowles. and we need to get something along those lines to eliminate the deficit and fix the debt, invest in building a true american energy independence, that will increase the tax credit for wind and solar, do things for gossip and solar and oil, and -- to do things for gas and oil. even if we do not build new nuclear reactors, o

to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdiction. that's from his spokesman, ryan williams. is this a problem for him, susan? >> well, i think it becomes an issue for him because of what he said in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in the aftermath of disasters like this one. so i think it's a question that i would expect governor romney feel that he needs to say some words about. maybe today about what role he would see for the federal government for fema if he were president in natural disasters like this one. >> all this goes back to what mitt romney said in one of the early primary debates. i want to play that now. >> every time you h
scrapped plans as well. instead, he joined running mate paul ryan in ohio. he made sure supporters knew sandy was still on his mind. >> and it's a time of celebration for us. it's a time of importance and significance. i know that right now some people in the country are concerned about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> romney is scheduled to many campaign again today in ohio. and he'll stop in iowa and wisconsin. >> it's forced governor o'malley to cancel early voting in maryland. voting was supposed to run through thursday. governor o'malley says he hopes he can extend that through friday to make up for today. >>> people in d.c. are gearing up for sandy's impact. >> that includes neighborhoods prone to power outages and flooding. news 4's megan mcgrath is live in the bloomingdale section of the city with more on that. what are they doing this time around? >> reporter: you're right. they've had a horrible time in the bloomingdale neighborhood with flooding, and we're talking normal storms, not anythin
was stolen. we all have a responsibility not to live permanently on the grassy knoll. host: ryan in springfield, tennessee, republican. caller: can you hear me? host: we are listening. caller: the congressional races, there are four of them in virginia. all three of them are republicansi who picked up democrats. i want to hear him talk about those four races. i believe republicans will hold those three but i think frank could in the future go to a democrat, his seat. i think frank connolly will hold on. i wonder if he thinks there will be a couple of upsets in senate races too? shelly berkeley will defeat her opponent in nevada and i think todd akin will be the winner in his race. host: is this a hobby of yours to follow politics? caller: yes. guest: i'm happy to answer a fellow hobbyists. it becomes your vocation if you let. in virginia, i can simplify the current situation for you. all the incumbents are going to win. they have done a marvelous job working with the state legislature in creating districts that it would be very difficult for them to lose them. so they get my gold
running mate paul ryan also scrapping rallies in florida and colorado. the congressman, mr. ryan in his home state of wisconsin today thanking volunteers for helping out in storm relief efforts. with the campaigns on hold just seven days out from the election who benefits and who does not? chris stirewalt the fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. mother nature hit the pause button on this race, you know, eight days out from the presidential election, chris, and, you know, at some point this week the thumb will be taken off the pause button, and where are we then? >> exactly. perfectly put, because by the time we get to thursday things will be back in full swing. you know what thursday is, thursday is into the hot zone of the election where you're so close to the vote that there is really not much time that people have, that candidates have to change the trajectory of the race and there isn't time for big concepts or big ideas to sink in and you're just down in that final scramble. so what hurricane sandy has done is taken away these days that both camp
to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. if there are other ways you can help, please take advantage of them because there will be a lot of people looking for help and the people of ohio have big heart, so we're expecting you to follow through and help out. >> well, we know early voting was canceled yesterday in maryland and power outages will certainly cause more problems for early voting but what about an actual delay of election day. it could happen. let's go to pete williams, nbc justice correspondent, but, pete, really? >> it could but it probably won't and, you know, to
to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of the united states. if he can't do it, maybe he should step aed and let someone else try. >> governor romney will say virtually anything to win, as the dealer put it, he will do anything, no matter how much confusion he must sew to do t. the president's job is not sosew confusion, but to plant the seeds of competence and growth in the american people. >> one thing i know about mitt, he does not fail and he will not fail as a president. i have seen him as a husband, as a father, as a governor, as a businessman, as a guy who turned around the olympics. in every single situation,il tell you, he has tackled each job with integrity, character, discipline and a heart so big. >> everybody here listening knows that i don't like obottom a. everybody knows that i have never been fooled pie obama. everybody knows i have a
his plans. the republican presidential nominee and running mate paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. the campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of his rallies to donate to the red cross. many area residents will not be able to vote early because of sandy. governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting centers to be closed for a second day. he ordered early voting extended through december 2nd to make up for the missed days. >>> 6:18 now. air travel both nationally and internationally remains crippled by sandy's impact. all flights going out of reagan and dulles remain cancelled until further notice. leaving the few passengers who are there to wait out the airports, which do remain open with limited staffing. right now there aren't any planes on the ground there either. they were moved to other airports in other cities before the storm. >>> it could be difficult getting around the area with downed trees and flooded roads. tony tull is live now where sandy left an impressive trail of destruction. >> reporter:
romney in wisconsin and congressman ryan in melbourne, and lakeland, florida. we are also cancelling all events currently scheduled for both governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. governor romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those americans who are in harm's way. we will provide additional details regarding their schedules when they are available. so at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to
